Tokyo Vampire Hotel – A Bright Bloody Mess | KT Review

Being awake and alert enough for programs with subtitles doesn’t happen very often for me so they usually get left in my to be watched cue anticipating the day I’ll press play. Well, last night I sorted the subtitles and pressed play on Tokyo Vampire Hotel and I’m glad I did. 

Bright, colourful, gory, messy, violent and based on an ancient rivalry between two vampire clans – The Corvin Clan and The Dracula Clan. They are battling for possession of one girl, gifted with Dracula’s blood on the day of her birth when a celestial cross appeared in the sky. Now aged 22, she spends a lot of time screaming and running away. Which is to be expected when all your friends are shot and killed by a vampire in the cutest dress and heels. But as you can see from the trailer, unless you speak Japanese, you really need the subtitles (on Prime, click the three lines on your remote & select subtitles). 

Tokyo Vampire Hotel

Captured by vampires, Manami is taken to their hotel where they keep humans to feed on. Guests arrive at a matchmaking party, having been promised money for attending, and are then told the world is ending and they have been saved. Instructed to find a partner to survive, a party of rival clan members interfere and all hell breaks loose. 

Starring Ami Tomite (Tag, The Virgin Psychics), Yumi Adachi (Star Kid, Miss Sherlock), Ami Fukuda (Antiporno, 4 Sisters of the Saotome), Kaho (Tokyo Girl, Our Little Sister), Megumi Kagurazaka (13 Assassins, Why Don’t You Play In Hell?),  Shinnosuke Mitsushima (Erased, My Life Changed When I Went to a Sex Parlour), and Akihiro Kitamura (The Human Centipede, Heroes).

Tokyo Vampire Hotel Review Conclusion

I will be watching the whole series – It starts out bloody and messy and continues that way, it’s like an action movie set around a vampire hotel. The hotel is bright and well staffed with everything the victims could require. It took a little to get into the story and accept that probably not all of the translations were accurate in terms of meaning but it’s a good fun, gory vampire series. I’m really enjoying it.
